Do I claim babysitting money for taxes?
Asked Feb 11, 2008, 08:50 PM
I am a stay-at-home dad. I babysit another child at his home 25 hours a week, making $250 per week. The family is from Israel. My wife and I want to do taxes, but they haven't done their paperwork to claim they have a "nanny" working for them. Do I claim my earnings or not? I never filled out any paperwork when I was hired, so no W2. We are just afraid that if we do claim we will get screwed. Please help! Thanks... I know it is a busy time of year for you.
